About this listing
Situated almost at the summit of Mt Buninyong this unique mud brick house is arguably in Ballarat's Dress Circle. It has imposing views from its terrace across the entire Western District of Victoria to the Grampians. Fabulous sunsets are a feature in all seasons. Sundowner drinks on the terrace in the warmer months are almost obligatory!

The house built in the 70s, extended in the 90s and renovated and further extended in 2014 consists of two large entertaining areas, open plan kitchen/ meals area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a studio. All the rooms are generous in size and have floor to ceiling windows and as a result are light filled and bright.

The kitchen is spacious and well designed with a large walk in pantry to supplement already generous storage. Also included in the kitchen is a large colonial dresser - all the joinery is made from Tasmanian Oak.

The house is placed in the middle of the plot's 9 acres. Two of the three paddocks have been planted with exotic trees all noted for their fall foliage. In the one acre garden there are over 20 Japanese Maples and the autumn colour on this property is glorious and frequently commented on. The garden has good structural bones and will benefit from an enthusiastic gardener. It's mainly a shrub garden but in spring the 2000 bulbs provide a wonderful welcome to the warmer weather.

There are 20 solar panels with a 5kW inverter that generates all the house hold electricity needs on a sunny day. There are three water tanks, 66,000 litre tank for the garden and 60,000 litre storage for the house. The large shed has the potential be used as a third garage space, if required, with ample room still remaining for storage and a workshop.

The studio space is currently used by a fabric artist which could be easily converted into a granny flat, a self-contained B & B or a teenagers retreat.

This is a great property for a tree change with lots of character in a much desired location. Viewing will not disappoint.
